Narcissists Vs. Psychopaths: Any Difference?

Narcissists vs. Psychopaths: Subtle Differences

Though similar, narcissists are different than psychopaths. Narcissists have obvious and predictable behaviors, after all, the whole world is all about them. They may still let you be a part of things but only for as long as you compliment them, give them attention or credit, or feed into their goals. Narcissists can be emotionally exhausting.

Psychopaths, on the other hand, don’t typically make any decisions that may help like the volunteering, activities, and/or coaching. They tend to be more reckless, vengeful or calculated when violent. They seek and receive pleasure in other people’s loss, discomfort, or misery and they are seemingly aroused with planning chaos. It is uncomfortable to be around them because you quickly sense that they are not “good” people. Words like “evil” and “unhinged” come to mind. You feel yourself quickly wanting to distance yourself from a psychopath.

Please don’t confuse the two.
